Remember Chatur Ramalingam or ‘The Silencer’, from Aamir Khan’s much-loved film 3 Idiots? The character played by Indian American actor Om Vaidya was probably most popular in the film, thanks to his iconic and hilarious ‘balatkaar’ speech, which was widely shared and oft quoted. Alas, at the time memes weren’t as big a phenomenon as they are now, which would explain why belatedly and seemingly suddenly Chatur has now become a popular meme and caption contest source.
The photo is from the scene when a drunk Chatur enters the terrace and challenges Rancho to make it big in life and even tries to pick a fight. “Hai himmat? Aaega.. Aaega…” he says and Netizens are having a ball not only coming up with plausible answers but recreating the situation to match current affairs as well.
“Indian fans to Piers Morgan right now,” wrote a user after India won the Test series against England, taking a dig at the British journalist’s not-to-pleasant history of reacting to Indian sporting achievements. “US immigration department to Shahrukh Khan,” wrote another user given King Khan’s history of getting repeatedly detailed at the US airport. “Your ex when he/she hands you the wedding invitation card,” wrote another.
Take a look at some of the hilarious memes here.
